Helena McGill and Anna Wozniewicz are visual storytellers with a background in sound design for narrative film. After noticing a lack of women entrepreneurs in audio and music production, they started Noctvrnal in 2017, an audio post-production studio based in Los Angeles.
Since then, they have expanded into the XR and immersive tech space, where they’re intent on making space for queer women in technology and doing so by actively participating in networking groups like Lesbians Who Tech, Women in VR, and Women in Music.
Spatial audio is a crucial aspect of developing truly immersive experiences, and many of the pioneers doing interesting work in that space are female. This week at SXSW in Austin Jessica Brillhart spoke of this as “Uncharted Territories for VR”
Every Tuesday we'll shine a spotlight on the female trailblazers making their mark in immersive tech. If you have a story you think we should feature, just hit reply to this email or tweet me @alicebonasio
